Determined to challenge herself and get out of her comfort zone, in the summer of 2018, she moved to London to study music and collaborate with international artists. Her first year in London concludes with a repertoire of original music that mixes her pop/soul background with some new electronic elements.

Lyra is a London six set Neo Soul – Electronic pop group combining epic and sweeping vocals, driving and rhythmic guitar lines, with a euphoric rhythmic sound. Lyra have been hard at work shaping a style and groove that can’t be ignored. In an age of recording artists, it is truly refreshing to find a band that is as good, if not better live than on recording.Lyra comprises Craig Norfords drum beats with funk edge aplenty, George Price’s smooth base lines, James Skingle’s R+B licks to his heavy solos, Ejike Nnodi’s Jazzy Keys, and Jenna Naylor-Tymon and Manon Vix’s soulful yet haunting vocals. Their neo-soul originals ooze an irresistibly euphoric rhythm.
Alessia is a pop artist originally from Switzerland but currently living in London. At age of 5 Alessia started playing the Piano. Firstly she was classically trained and then on Jazz music. However, her best musical skill is to write music and perform on stage. Alessia started studying at BIMM London where she was able to focus on developing and forming her path into the music industry. Her ambition is to be able to perform her music to as many people as possible, wanting to spread and awaken joy in each person that she encounters. She has collaborated with several songwriters and musicians over the last year. Her deput EP will be released on the 12th November upon a limited Vinyl edition.
